It Will Soon be Time to Prune.

Whilst the hill here looks to have a gentle slope walking up and down it a few times is certainly testing on the knees and  legs. 

With the leaves turning and falling from the vines, it will soon be time to get back into the vineyard and start the rows and rows of pruning. As a small family run vineyard the only way is to prune the six thousand vines is by hand. It's quite a job!

  1. Having lived next to a vineyard in France and watched them prune by hand I can only agree Rae! BTW I checked out your vineyard website - I wish you could ship to the UK without a mortgage, I'd love to try your wine.
